If you're considering a robust work knife, there are a few key things to look for. A hefty blade with a good steel and a great shape. Handles that grip well and shaped for comfort when performing harder tasks. And for EDCers, the knife should also be pocket-friendly. QuietCarry, best known for their minimalist EDC knives, have taken on the challenge of building a better workhorse blade. The Chase is an everyday knife designed to do hard work and look damn good while doing it.

From tip to clip, QuietCarry have put thought into the Chase's every feature to reinforce its purpose as a workhorse EDC. Its 2.95” blade comes in a drop point shape with a full belly for general-purpose utility, while its N690Co steel was chosen for its ease of maintenance and ability to hold (and hone) an edge. A thumb slot makes ambidextrous opening easy. Beefy knurling along the spine gives extra purchase for tougher slices.

The Chase's handles come in tried-and-true G10, shaped with extra width to help fill your palm for a more ergonomic grip. A deep finger notch gives both access to the blade's thumb slot and works in tandem with the spine knurling for a rock-solid grasp on the knife. Lock duty is handled by a liner lock, which also keeps the weight low at 2.8 ounces. Good knives are often ruined by a bad clip; luckily QuietCarry thought of that too, adding a deep-carry pocket clip that sits the knife flush in your pocket so no extra material is showing, making the Chase a discreet addition to your pocket carry.

With well-thought out features and an eye for EDC, QuietCarry's Chase is a welcome addition to their stable of minimalist, high-performance knives. The knife's still ongoing with its (fully funded) Kickstarter campaign, so there's plenty of time to to pledge one for yourself in your choice of black or olive G10, or special SeaGrey resin handles at the link below.

I've been carrying and using a Quietcarry Strand as my EDC blade since December 2016. If it were not for the fact that my Strand is everything I've wanted in an EDC knife, I'd be buying one of these in a heartbeat. I know from the experience I've had with my Strand that if this new offering is half as good in fit and finish, it will be an amazing piece of gear.
